It started with a roar on Election Day,

the day that sense and reason went away.

 

It screamed, "there's a new sheriff in town,

and America will no longer be jerked around."

 

The world recoiled in confusion and fear,

just what would happen next was unreal, yet clear.

 

his unreasoning bull would trash the shop, and

turn the one-time 'land of the free' into the 'land

 

of me'. It was 'the not heard 'round the world', and in disbelief,

they watched as America rolled up the sidewalks, relief

 

found nowhere, compassion, not here! America turned nails,

a horrendous screeching sound as democracy came off the rails.
